The Wonderful 101 demo is live on the eShop

Also, watch this badass trailer

Nintendo held another Direct stream this morning, focusing entirely on The Wonderful 101 and why it might very well be the greatest thing ever. And rounding out the stream was the above seven-and-a-half-minute trailer that ran through the entire Wonderful Ones squad, introducing the Russian Wonder Yellow and gadget-loving Wonder Black for the first time.

Following the Nintendo Direct, PlatinumGames announced that European and Japanese Wii U owners could download a demo from the eShop right now. From the wording, it sounded like Americans would have had to wait a few extra days or weeks to get their fix, but it's now officially available in the US as well.

Everyone else gets the game on August 23 while the US has to wait until September 15, but this demo will make that wait so much easier. Thanks for listening to my pleas, Platinum!
